****Guys, if you know of any con going on in your area that isn't on the list, let me know so I can add it. Local knowledge is the best source of information.****

Hey guys, I know it isn't our genre, but there is a Gaming con in Anaheim CA coming up: BlizzCon. Nov 1-2........They do have cosplay and a large contingent of cosplay categories for the competition......but as I said, its Blizzard oriented so get your Night Elves ears on, grab your Dwarven Boom Sticks and Uber with Lothar on his Gryffin to Azeroth....AKA Anaheim Convention Center, and have some fun. (Sometimes it sucks being on the East Coast. :()

Still going up on the Cons list and slotting it for next years as well...... I'm still waiting for Warcraft 2 movie....could have been better but I hate when movies leave things hanging.....not happening though.
